Question
what the role of IPC IN PRODUCTION?

Answer
IPC - In-Process Control - has the purpose of immediately checking that production operations are being correctly carried out when you cannot wait for final QC testing.

For example, IPC will perform fill volume checks every 10, 15, 30 minutes (pick a number) as we cannot wait until two days later to find out that the fill volume is incorrect; and hence the batch is rejected.

IPC checks are typically performed by production personnel and is a production check upon itself.
